I posted not long ago about pinching the pennies during pregnancy and time is absolutely flying by! Baby Moore will be with us in around 3 months time and saving money is becoming more crucial than ever.
So here is an update on how we’ve been doing with saving money and some of my best advice for those of you in a similar position or those just wanting saving tips.
I’ve worked in the Financial sector for 8 years and worked overall since I was 16. I’ve always been a saver having saved the deposit for our house and scrimped alongside hubby to have some fantastic holidays over the years. When it came to thinking about children, we always knew that they would cost us a bit and having a plan would be the only way forward.
Our first step in saving money was to set aside money each month from our wages and put it in a separate savings account. Step 1 achieved and ongoing until maternity leave commences.
Next step was to review our outgoings and see what could be cut back/saved.
